Pros: Mt Vernon has a great course with lots of potential.

It currently has nine holes but has red and blue tees so it can be played as a 18. There is not much elevation variety but plenty of right and left variety. If you mix in the blues you will also get plenty of distance.

The park is groomed and mowed weekly no fear of ticks and snakes here.

There is a local club that host plenty of tournaments and a league.

The snow cone stand has the best snow cones in the world! Yes the world! When you come be sure to try one.
Cons: No concrete tee pads yet. I hear they are planning on some in the future.
Other Thoughts: This is a heavily used park be cautious of people walking, biking that sort of thing.

Pros: There is 9 holes at this course now.
Cons: Not the placement for the last two holes we wanted, but they play nice.
Other Thoughts: possibly adding more holes in the future, the park has seven acres across the street that they might let us use.

Pros: There's a course in Mt. Vernon, so that's a pro. The course is laid out in a fairly simple way to figure out where to head. I hear they're moving this up from 7 to 9 holes soon, so that's a pro as well.
Cons: The course is really easy. The holes are fairly short and they have so many lines of attack that it'll be a huge ego boost for anyone playing this course for the first time. I think I shot a -3 the first time I played the course--and that was from the "pro" tees. I'm not a pro, but it seems like a super easy course. Also, some of the shots go over walking paths and there are very often pedestrians on them. It's a little dangerous--especially considering most of the people walking the path have no idea what you're doing.
Other Thoughts: Overall it's a nice way to spend about 30 minutes, but it could really use some reshaping for a little more challenge on the course.
